Maine, 05-20-2019 

Hello my friends
 
This passed week has been fairly decent.
Judy and I have been enjoying watching
it rain LOL.  Yeppers,  as soon as it quit
snowing it did as it always does,  began
raining.  LOL there's been a few intervals
of it raining and snowing at the same time.
The weather's confusion.  So,  we've just
been being lazy,  other than doing a bit
of touch ups on the boys haircuts and all.
I got a hold of Rocky and got him trimmed
and shaved pretty good.  He's one happy
camper now.  I'm sure all of that hair on
him was itchy.  Judy did some trimming
on Benny,  but we've still got a lot to do
on him.  I've just got a few touch ups to
do on Rocky,  like on his face and paws,
but other than that,  he's looking good :)
Judy's in the kitchen right now making
her and I some omelets for breakfast, yum.
We did do a little driving the other day
and I took a few pictures.  We had been
talking about us stopping at the Rusty
Crab and getting us something to eat,
but it always seemed to never happen :),
but last Thursday we made the decision
to drive up to Presque Isle and stop at
the Rusty Crab to get us something to eat.
I got the shrimp dinner and Judy got the
fried clam dinner.  The Rusty Crab is a
small building with a lady that cooks the
food inside of it so the only seats to sit
at if you want to eat it there are picnic
tables outside.   Judy and I had already
planned on bringing the food home to
eat while we watched the Black List on
TV :)  So,  we enjoyed our dinner at
home on top of the fact it was raining
off and on most of the day LOL and we
would of gotten wet if we had eaten on
the outside picnic tables.  So Friday as
I said before,  we gave the boys a good
whack (on their hair of course) and then
turned them loose to play.  They were
both ecstatic with their haircuts,  but I
think Rocky was the happiest hehehehe.
He was always itching due to all of that
hair that had so many snarls in it that
it would of confused a house of mirrors.
So,  what else it happening here at the
Pearce's Place?  Well,  Judy and I are
sort of recouping from giving the boys
their haircuts,  being they are sort of
feisty and not always cooperative when
you want to cut the hair on their bellies
and paws LOL.   Also they tend to do
a lot of squirming when trying to cut
their facial hair LOL.  Oh yea,  I did
a little trimming on my facial hair as
well.  Yep,  I figured it was time for me
to give my beard its summer trimming.
It's still a little cool up this way,  but
for the most part,  winter is gone and
spring and summer are here.  LOL the
reason I say spring and summer is due
to the fact that our winters last a long
time and spring is always almost said
and done by the time winter releases
its grip hehehe.  The grass is turning
greener with each passing day.  Soon
the bugs will be buzzing and I am not
looking forward to that,  but it is what
it is.  Soon winter will be knocking on
our door once again and I'm sure I'll
be happy to see it.  Greeting it with a
cold snowy handshake :)  But yet,  it
is just May now and there is but only
a couple of weeks left in it which means
summer is on its way.  Of course we
don't have near the temperatures that
Texas has during the heat of summer.
We might have a few days in the 90's
but very few and that's too hot for me,
so I always have our portable A.C unit
ready to bout the heat,  plus this year
I bought Judy and I a couple of Arctic
Air units to put on our night stands to
keep us cool.  They are small,  but as
I found out when I tested one out,  they
work.  They're water cooled.   Anyways
they should make sleeping a bit more
comfortable.  We've got a water cooled
fan in the living room for when we have
to leave the boys at home in their crates.
So,  bring it on summertime hehehehe.
Judy and I have made plans on going to
the Rusty Crab again next month and
then going on a picture taking drive :)
I always look forward doing things like
that.  LOL I need more pictures that
I can write about :)  I feel blessed with
all that God has given me to take my
many pictures of.  His creations are the
very best artwork.  They are on beyond
anything that we can create.  Plus I see
the beauty in the weathered things of
life such as run down barns and houses
that time has enhanced into a living
scene.  Thank You God for the many
different views of life that You give to
me and thank You for blessing us with
so much love and laughter.  I know I
get grumpy at times,  but You understand
and I am grateful.  Now I believe it's time
for me to begin my quest back through
all of my rambling to see if I can find a
good word of phrase that I can use for
the title for today's brand new poem.  So
it's away I go,  to that little place of my
recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I believe I may
of stumbled on a decent title midways
into my rambling and it looks as though
it has not been used yet,  so used it shall
be today.  Here goes...
 
Spring and Summer
 
Seconds ticking
times come true
spring and summer
come in view.
Scenic notions
seasons joy
spring and summer
then deploy.
Bringing artwork
lifetimes found
spring and summer
as you look around.
Time's a trickster
creating things
spring and summer
as running streams.
Rivers flowing
creating designs
spring and summer
a moment defines.
Look for beauty
within the days
spring and summer
in so many ways.
Don't let sadness
to pour like rain
spring and summer
gives much to gain.
Find the heartbeat
of seasons drummer
often within the
spring and summer.

There ya go :)  I hope you liked the poem
a little bit and maybe even found a little
joy in reading through my rambling LOL.
It looks like this week is gonna be a rainy
one hehehe not unlike last week.  Yep, it
has been raining off and on today and it's
supposed to rain on through the night and
into tomorrow.  Rain's forecasted for the
next couple of days and then we might
have a small break from it LOL,  but that
could change hehehe.  Anyways,  I guess
that's about all I have for you this week,
of course aside from what I tell you every
week and that is,  I wrote a few more poems
and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more poems with 1
extra which is a poem I wrote about the
Rusty Crab and made into a poetry picture
and shared on their Facebook page hehehe.
I also wrote 22 more haiku for all of the
haiku lovers out there.  I hope you can find
1 or 2 of either or both that you like.  So,
now I believe it's time for me to begin my
search for that hardly elusive off switch,
but not before I wish you all a blessings
filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you
and we do too.  Okie dokie,  where can
that ornery off switch be trying to hide
this time?  Hmm,  I went to the kitchen
and got me some grape Koolaid and on
my trip back into the computer room I
happened to notice my mouse cord was
it was moving.   LOL,  ya tripped on it
trying to hide behind the DSL modem
didn't ya hehehe.  On top of that,  you
didn't quite make it.   I guess you gave
up when I saw ya,  cause now you're
just sitting there with a grin on your face.
:) Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzz.
 
God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky
and the spirit of Milo Pearce

Healing Touch
 
The touch of sight
the touch of sound
can give a healing
of life all around.
Scenes that we see
or hear in a way
can be our healers
in wondrous array.
A healing touch
of time and place
can give blessings
of a smiling face.
The beauty of life
just waits to be seen
things we pass by
could be a dream.
A living moment
of sight and sound
needs to be noticed
needs to be found.
Find the blessings
in a heartbeat's beat
and let them grow
to calm the heat.
Things we remember
things we recall
can be our blessings
to cure our fall.
Let God guide you
with love so much
and show you life
with a healing touch.

A Vessel Appears
 
Seas of a moment
life times are seen
timeless emotions
of aquamarine.
Clouds may gather
as a sorted array
as a vessel appears
to welcome the day.
Scene's awaken
as an awesome style
a fragrant aroma
of a flowing while.
Waters with ripples
and timeless views
are as the vessel's
seafaring shoes.
Scented of salt air
and fish in the sea
a vessel appears
to float oh so free.
It shifts its rudders
and mast to sail
in an oceans waves
with timeless detail.
The journey began
a touch of the helm
creating pathways
to another realm.
It's as a lifestyle
beginning with fears
showing a new day
as a vessel appears.

Imaginary Dreams
 
Just like reality,
but not very true
ones imagination
can create a view.
On through time
of an assorted gaze
imaginary dreams
create many ways.
Some as an ocean
and other details
some as a pattern
of train track rails.
You might not see
what time beholds
scenes in the dreams
as our life unfolds.
Stages may change
leaving only sights
some as blue skies
or stars in the nights.
Our imagination
is a wonderful tool,
but when misused
can create a fool.
Look for the truth
within imagination,
but don't let it only
see devastation.
We can grow beyond
what a moment seems
often began with
imaginary dreams.

Year Ago Yesterday
 
Minds of a summer
on a beach faraway
might seem just like
a year ago yesterday.
It may of been time
as decades of past
now but only scenes
as shadows we cast.
The years pass us by
leaving certain trails
the calmness of waves
as seascape details.
I still find sights
within my minds eye
of a time long ago
with an oceanic sky.
Watching from shore
I see waves rolling in
bringing in moments
to live then again.
Now is just a picture
of decades of time
a year ago yesterday
seems to unwind.
The years magnify
most every little scene
as a place I remember
now but just a dream.
Yet while I reminisce
the days of long ago
I also sort of smell
the ocean and its flow.
Sea air's so enticing
in this photo I adore
creating the turnstiles
moments to explore.
It lives as emotions
of a timeless array
maybe longer than
a year ago yesterday.

Just a Glimpse
 
Daily momentum
is brought into view
as time's preparing
new things to do.
Seasons devising
new ways to become
not just a glimpse,
but a seasonal sun.
The grasses may die
and then turn brown
as they're preparing
to turn it around.
Snow may have left
as grass comes alive
as just a glimpse
shows it to survive.
We might see friends
or people we pass
that seem to be dead
in shadows they cast.
Yet just a moment
can change the view
for just a glimpse
might not be so true.
Looking deeper
into the vast scenes
you might discover
we are not machines.
For just a glimpse
can misread a mind
as life moves onto
a new day and time.

Yesterday's Tomorrow
 
Just like a river
that flows of a time
yesterday's tomorrow
you might surely find.
Found as a journey
that came and went
yesterday's tomorrow
shows its intent.
Yesterdays became as
the scenes of today
life in its continuance
the minutes at play.
Forming as a river
that flows to and fro
yesterday's tomorrow
gives now to bestow.
Syncing with minutes
as seconds tick on
yesterday's tomorrow
shows a new dawn.
It forms as beginnings
we may not perceive
times that intertwine
moments to breathe.
Yesterday's lifestyles
might right now exist
as today marks arrival
that turns and twists.
Don't let the past to
be filled with sorrow
as it becomes as your
yesterday's tomorrow.

The Rusty Crab
 
My dear wife and I
one day set loose
to drive to a place
our times did induce.
We've driven by
this place to eat
so many times
that we met defeat.
For as we thought
so long and true
we both decided
to seek the view.
To find something
a seafood way
to fill our tummies
in any which way.
We found the food
was wondrously fab.
We'll have to return
to the Rusty Crab.

Blue Sky Beyond
 
Framed in life's windows
are the minutes we view
the times that define
what is me and you.
Some blue cloudy skies
above grasses of green
display the heartbeats
some have never seen.
Moments we remember
can become oh so faded
with a blue sky beyond
that seems a bit shaded.
Linked to our choices
the voices of time appear
telling of the stories
of now and yesteryear.
Life can seem endless
on the sad days we find
if we always view them
deep inside of our mind.
Look for the blessings
within the many grays
and let your eyes to see
another better phase.
Allow yourself some time
to begin a different view
a time to be refined
and to live within you.
Look for the windows
of a new day to dawn
found in the beauty of
a blue sky beyond.

Heard As A Roar
 
Many times words are
so often passed by
when so many hear us
and do not ask why.
So often our emotions
will lead us astray
roaring as a lion
as we say what we say.
Oh so many moments
become as a glance
only to be confused as
a little song and dance.
Yet as our storm brews
we might still be seen
found as a river
that's just but a stream.
Times are surmounted
as minutes portray
days that we're needing
to kneel down and pray.
Turning loose of anger
and letting peace begin
while moving away from
the places we've been.
Maybe not physically,
but moving in a style,
changing our patterns
and finding a smile.
Open your minds eye
and seek to explore
a way to find peaceful
not heard as a roar.

Doorways
 
Living for the now
and not for tomorrow
often leaves regretful
filled full of sorrow.
So many doorways
will open real wide
to only be tempters
of a real bumpy ride.
Enjoy the moments
that time gives to see,
but don't allow wanna
a web which to weave.
Now is just an instant
that comes and goes
sometimes with sadness
found in shadows.
Look before you leap
in doorways you find
and take precautions,
for time after time.
Sometimes doorways
will have better days,
but yet so often
be filled with grays.
Find the best doorway
in waters of style
and then enjoy them
with a great big smile.

Rhythms of Colors
 
A search through time
can display rhymes
rhythms repeating
some scenic designs.
Just like the great artist
in the sky of blue
colors are changing
from old to anew.
Times never ceasing
as life moves along
using all the colors
to sing their sweet song.
With rhythmic styles
of a rippling hue
there's found in a pond
sweet waters of blue.
The grasses of nature
in the greenest phase
become that of artwork
for many to gaze.
Scenes come together
with a magical style
creating the pictures
to give us a smile.
Beginnings and endings
are sewed in time
scented of nature
with rhythms to find.
Look beyond the view
at all of the others
the timeless cuisine
as rhythms of colors.

Haiku
for May 18,  2019
 
Time is an echo
that repeats its own moments
within its own sync.
 
Cosmic equations
are as many desires
found within our dreams.
 
Shouting at the sky
will not get you any results
but that of hoarseness.
 
Living in a lie
can dig a grave of regret
when others find out.
 
Flourishing dewdrops
begin their morning travels
as the sun comes up.
 
Harvesting sadness
can create a field teardrops
that a smile might hide.
 
Finding some stardust
in a dream of tomorrow
might be yesterday.
 
Sharing a garden
with the magic of a prayer
can grow many things.
 
Finding conclusions
without firstly looking close
you might find you're wrong.
 
Brand new beginnings
might show glimmers of the past
that were not let go.
 
Anger of a time
can create a barrier
that cannot find smiles.
 
Nobody's perfect,
but many think that they are
and are obnoxious.
 
Loose fitting lifestyles
can become floodgates of pain
when not having rules.
 
Looking deep within
you might find a darkened path
in need of some light.
 
Life is a candle
with wax melting as it burns
to leave existence.
 
The length of a road
is not formed by the driver,
but who that laid it.
 
Changing perspective
can also change how you feel,
so look for the good.
 
Bewildered moments
can often be just a scene
that's just passing by.
 
Beyond what we see
might be a future to find
as time runs its course.
 
Challenges of life
can be tools to help you grow
if you don't give up.
 
Roses of a heart
often have a lot of thorns
to keep you alert.
 
Sharing a blessing
can make the blessing greater
if you are sincere.
